This makes two weeks in a row with a Georgia Bulldog on the show (Rennie Curran was our guest last week). Some GT Yellow Jacket I am huh? UGA volleyball and basketball alum and ESPN analyst Maria Taylor is our guest for episode 8 of The Chris Craft Show. We discussed her years coming up in youth and high school athletics…playing both volleyball and basketball. We also chatted about her on-air work at ESPN and how her faith impacts her work daily. Lastly, we talked about her work in developing more professional opportunities for women and ethnic minorities in sports business and media. Enjoy the show!
